With Black Friday fast approaching Recycling and Waste World have a post outlining how environmental charity Hubbub are encouraging people to embrace #BrightFriday as environmentally conscious alternative. The article highlights how “Half of us worry about the environmental impact of buying things we don’t need, as 350,000 tonnes of unwanted clothes end up in landfill each year” Black Friday was introduced to the UK in 2010 and has continued to grow with 2016 looking to go even further as it becomes a five day extravaganza. The campaign encourages people to “rekindle their love for clothes they already have” instead of being tempted by sales and offers to buy things they don’t use and will not use.
